Hello from New Orleans. Tonight, Henry T. Casey will be reporting live from Raw at the Smoothie King Center. We will likely see Lesnar come out to epic heat, Daniel Bryan celebrate his title win, and possibly, The Undertaker’s retirement speech. See you at 7:30 EDT, Wrestlemaniacs.
WWE Superstars taping: Ziggler vs. Ryback to start. Ryback chants “RYBACK” at the crowd after the crowd chants “GOLDBERG.” Crowd firmly behind Ziggler, with plenty of chants of “LET’S GO, ZIGGLER” to show that they think he’s above Superstars. Ziggler hit a great face buster off the top rope for a near fall. A lot of near falls for Ziggler, but Ryback won with a pinfall after hitting Shellshocked.

Superstars Match 2: Kofi Kingston, with a whole lot of pyro, vs. Titus O’Neil (because black wrestlers only have one on one matches with other black wrestlers???) Titus wrestled very stiff; I could feel that big boot he put on Kingston – and the chest chops he hit as well – as well from ringside. Kofi’s flying offense looks incredibly soft in person. Titus won with a powerbomb, not a meaningful match, but one he shouldn’t be losing.
The crowd is chanting/singing Cesaro‘s entrance music pretty loudly before the show opened.
Never ending “DAN-IEL-BRY-AN” chants.
It’s odd that Bryan will only fight Triple H tonight, I could have seen him booked to fight twice.
It’s announced that The Hall of Fame ceremony will replay on USA after Raw tonight.
After an NXT promo, the audience chants “OLE! OLE! OLE! OLE!” In reference to Sami Zayn.
Backstage promo from Steph and Triple H, and Batista complains about Triple H losing. Randy Orton enters and he and Batista both want rematches, but only Trips gets the shot tonight.
Orton and Batista booked against the tag team champs The Usos, with the belts on the line. Triple H references that Evolution; they were unstoppable.
BRAP! it’s the Wyatts. “New Orleans, we’re here.”
Wyatt Family to face Cena, Sheamus, and Big E.
The crowd is firmly behind the Wyatts as the match starts, Cena v Bray. All of Cena’s offense is met with boos. Bray takes great pleasure in the crowd’s support. The crowd sings “JOHN CENA SUCKS” to the tune of Cena’s entrance theme.
The crowd sings “HE’S GOT THE WHOLE WORLD IN HIS HANDS,” just as Bray has in back stage promos. Most of the match featured Luke Harper, who looks great.
Bray stomps a hole into Cena. Cena keeps coming back and the crowd keeps booing. The singalongs of CENA SUCKS and THE WHOLE WORLD each happen again.
Cena makes a hot tag to Sheamus who cleans house and hits a few double moves on Rowan and Harper.
A nice high flying splash by Harper to people outside the ring,
Wyatt ends the match hitting Sister Abigail on Big E, and then pinning him for a win.
Amazing Hype video for Bo Dallas. It’s not Impossible. It’s I’m Possible.
Out comes Fandango and Summer Rae for a mixed tag match against Santino and Emma.
Emma gets to use the Taranta and then the Emma Lock. Summer Rae taps to the Emma lock. Emma’s music. We dance.
Out to massive boos, of course, are Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman. Lesnar has a black bruise under his left eye.
Damien Sandow is out first though, and that’s a pleasant surprised to see him on Raw.
AND ROB VAN DAM RETURNS. Oh no, Sandow is going to get squashed.
Sandow keeps interrupting Van Dam’s poses.
Whenever RVD gets some offense in, Sandow rolls out of the ring.
RVD goes top rope and hits the 5-star-frog splash, and gets the pin.
Sandow thankfully didn’t look completely inept.
Out comes Rey Mysterio, who is forced to wrestle in a t-shirt because he’s out of shape. Like Cartman wearing a white t-shirt in the swimming pool bad.
But making his return to in ring competiton is Bad News Barrett!!!
After saying he’s had a hard time finding the words, he pulls a plastic Warrior mask out of the robe, and breaks back into character, for a big speech.
As the match starts, Heyman is in Cesaro’s corner, clutching the Andre part of the trophy.
Swagger v Cesaro is a PPV quality match. We are so lucky tonight, folks.
The top rope dead-lift suplex? Cesaro is that damn good. Great decision to have a no decision ending. Put this on Extreme Rules, and sell that PPV with that one match.
Up next, our last match, Bryan v Triple H II, for the title. If Triple H goes over, this place will melt down.
Over a montage of press covering Lesnar breaking The Streak, the crowd chants “THIS IS BULLSHIT.”
Backstage, Stephanie instructs The Shield and Kane to make sure Triple H wins the title tonight. It would be great to give their face turn greater visibility.
Stephanie shrieks out on Kane, and tells The Shield that the YES! movement and Bryan’s championship reign is an injustice, and that they have to work together.
Reigns’ response to Stephanie makes their upcoming disobedience even more likely.
